COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison Rue is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned, Belgian/French-style farmhouse ale. This is a beer of subtlety and complexity, with malted rye, spicy, fruity yeast notes, biscuit-like malt backbone and a slight citrus hop character. With age, this beer will dry out and will become more complex with rustic notes of leather and earth from the contribution of a wild yeast strain. Being a saison, Saison Rue is ambiguous unto itself as it is a different beer when fresh and when aged.

accidentally aged this for over 1.5 years. still a damn good beer; I dont care for the Brett and didnt really taste any - due to aging??. hazy gold color. aroma of spring and summer - citrus, flower, yeast, and slightest of funk. nice palate for style. taste is what gets this to a 4 - great balance of many many things going on here - citrus, Belgian yeast, funk, slightest of tartness, carbonation, yeast. love this!! thx to whomever/however I got this!

hazy golden with thick white head. flavor of tartness from the brett without classic saison yeasty esters. the brett muddles the style slightly, creating a brew that doesnt exactly work

Very fantastic and beautiful saison. Good crispness to balance out the traditional syrup that comes in "farmhouse" beers. This is a summer drinker despite its color. Highly recommended. Nice town name too... Placentia? Really?

Pours a hazy amber with a decent sized creamy off white head and tons of lace. Aroma is farmhouse yeast, citrus, orange peel, slight Funk. Flavour is Funk, farmhouse, mildly sweet, mildly bitter, hay, orange peel, and a bunch of fruity notes including grapes.

From Paul. Hazy gold with white head. Musty nose. Horsey musty flavor, crisp and finishes clean. Rye isnt my style but this works.

The pour is a hazy, coppery golden color with a full, rocky, fluffy, white head which settles to a rocky froth and leaves scattered sticky lace. The nose is certainly pleasant with spicy rye notes, tart oranges, dusty yeast, an earthy funkiness, floral tones, and some peppery phenols. The flavor is similar but the rye seems to compete a bit with estery fruitiness; very orangey, more bready (but still spicy from the rye), tart bretty notes but not very funky, moderately acidic, and floral. The palate is light to medium, more than lively, crisp, quenching, and drying in the finish. The finish is certainly characteristically dry with peppery phenols emerging matching spicy rye bread, floral and spicy hop notes bring a moderate bitterness, and lingering tart brett and orange citrus. A very solidly done saison with all the right staples of the style plus a unique twist. The rye and brett seemed to compliment each other in the nose but were in competition in the flavor, but by the finish the flavors dry out leaving you to forget about the competing notes. This "Bruery" does a very nice job on a variety of Belgian-esque and this one certainly lived up to the standards. Just need to find a way to my hands on some Black Tuesday.

Pous a hazy cloudy light golden color with medium thick white head. Aroma is of light citrus notes, slight musty yeasty, and light malt character. Taste is light citrus, light barnyard funk, some musty yeast, and light notes of light malt. Finish is pretty well carbonated with the effervescence being ever so bubbly. Finishes sweet with a funky finish showcasing the brett. First The Bruery beer and definitely love it!

Cloudy yellow. Funky light citrus, straw, and light malt aroma. I thought this stuff rocked...great big flavor, totally tasty but hard to pinpoint...citrus, full bodied, not too malty or hoppy or spicy; dry and funky light saison brett stuff and really great flavors overall. I liked this more than the White or Black Orchid (both of which were very good).

Bottle purchased at Friendly Mini Mart. Pour is a nice hazy amber color with a heap of foam on top. The aroma is a very lush grassy farmhouse yeast scent. Very fresh smelling with a hint of complex fruit to it. Flavor is fresh and still rather fruity. This manages to balance the blend of the earthy farmhouse flavor with a good balance of bitterness and finishing off with a rather robust fig, banana and grape complexity. Quite enjoyable.
